Beverly Hills’ Olive & June, one of the hottest salon destinations for your nails, is now sending all that glam to your home. Founder and CEO Sarah Gibson Tuttle is on a quest to live up to her company’s tagline, “Your BFF for all things nails.”
“I want to bring beautiful nails to everyone,” says Tuttle, who named her company after her grandmother and great-grandmother. A bevy of recent launches includes the nine-piece Studio Box, which contains all of the accouterments to deliver the perfect at-home mani. It includes nail polish remover and prep pot, a clean-up brush, a flat-edge nail clipper, dual-grit nail file, buffer cube, the “Poppy” universal polish bottle handle, your choice of nail polish, a top coat and a cuticle serum with cactus flower. Tuttle shares tips for bringing the job to your own domain.
“Our colors are definitely a reflection of what our community loves in the salon and on Instagram and how we can have a fresh take on that,” says Tuttle of the brand’s “7-free” line, which is free of the most common harmful chemicals typically found in nail polish. The light pink color “GE” was the No. 1-selling Olive & June color for spring 2019. Think brighter pinks, white, light peach and dusty denim, all found in the Shades of Summer set.
And after years of shunning matching toes and nail tip color, matchy-matchy is back. Tuttle’s also seeing neutral polish on the toe as well as pure-white pedis.
Give Your Nails a Hand: Filler, Lasers & Light
We lose collagen and elastin as we age, so hands show more veins, and skin loses elasticity. Try a filler to plump up the saggy spots, including Radiesse and Juvaderm. To lighten dark patches and “age spots” on the hands, the American Academy of Dermatology cites cryotherapy, laser therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, skin-lightening creams and serums and lotions such as Zo Skin Health Body Emulsion and Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum found at Sephora (wear with sunscreen if exposed to the sun) as options. For moisturizing and protecting your mitts, use a water-resistant SPF 30 or higher sunscreen such as Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream with Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40. Solartex SPF Protective Sun Gloves shield hands when driving. Gardening gloves are a must.
